Hostage Rescue in Colombia
15 hostages, including 3 Americans have been rescued from FARC in Colombia.
French-Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt, three US nationals and 11 other hostages were rescued from Marxist FARC rebels Wednesday, freed from years in captivity by a daring Colombian military raid.
Betancourt, who was captured in 2002, and the three Americans held since 2003, were rescued along with 11 Colombian soldiers in dramatic fashion when the Colombian military infiltrated a rebel jungle camp and removed them by helicopter.
A plane carrying the Americans, Defense Department Contractors, is about to land in Texas.
